Chandra Mathis, Science Teacher

Ms. Mathis teaches Science at HPA and is the coach of the Robotics Team.   She is in her 15th year of working in her passion of teaching.  She previously taught Science in Abilene and Stamford and was a 4th grade teacher at West Central in Hereford for two years.  Prior to her teaching career, she worked in the newspaper and radio business and was a church secretary.  She graduated from Canyon High School and has a BS in Agriculture Education with a Communications Specialization  from Texas Tech University.
She has two grown sons (Tanner & Dalton), one daughter-in-love (Kelsey) and is the very proud "YaYa" of one grandson, (Brazos). She is expecting her first granddaughter (Swayde) in October.  
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends and can often be found hiking in Palo Duro Canyon.  
 
"Teaching is my passion and my mission field," says Mathis, "I honestly believe that all students can achieve their dreams if they believe in themselves."
